Osteopathy emphasizes the interrelationship between structure and function and recognizes the body’s ability to heal itself; it is the role of the osteopathic practitioner to facilitate that process.
Pilates is a physical fitness system developed in the early 20th century by Joseph Pilates. Pilates called his method Contrology because he believed that his method uses the mind to control the muscles. The Pilates method seeks to increase the strength, flexibility and control of the body. Pilates is a body conditioning routine that helps to not only build flexibility, but also strength, endurance, and coordination in the legs, abdominals, arms and back.
Combine the two and you have Osteolates.
Canevaro says, “Osteolates allows the osteopath to build on their wide range of assessment and diagnostic skills, adding a new dimension by incorporating a dynamic assessment of the patient’s injuries to help diagnose and treat problems more accurately.”
